To allow for the creation of log files and caching of large downloaded files, we recommend that you give permission for the modification of files to the web server.

  1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager on your web server.

  2. Under Sites, right-click your Smart 3D web site name and select Edit Permissions.

  3. On the WebServer Properties dialog, select the Security tab.

  4. Check the permissions for the user listed as the Application Pool Identity of the application pool that contains the Web API. If the user does not have modify permission, click Edit.

    The Application Pool Identity user is listed in IIS and displayed in the Web API Configuration Tool during configuration of the web site.

  5. On the Edit form, select the Application Pool Identity user and give Modify permissions.

  6. In File Explorer, navigate to the %SystemDrive%\inetpub folder, right-click, and then select Properties.

    The Smart 3D Web Server log files are written to the %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles folder.

  7. Add the Application Pool Identity user to the list of users.

  8. Select the Security tab, and then select Advanced under the list of permissions box.

  9. Select the Application Pool Identity user from the list of users, and click Change permissions

  10. Give the user write permissions, if you have not already, and then select the checkbox to replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object.

  11. Click OK.
